This document only deals with new membership, but renewing is pretty much the same – just substitute “renew” instead of join. First go to the Australian Canoeing web site:
Click on the button below.
On the home page look for “Join” along the top of the page, or hover over “membership” just below that. I have shown the latter below. Either way, pick “join”.
Holding the mouse over membership you will see the choices in red as on the picture above – click on “Join” whether this is your first time or if you are renewing. If you clicked on join you will bypass this step.
Both methods will get you to the page shown right.
Pick “join” either for the first or second time – depending on which way you started

From here the next step is simply do a bank transfer for the fee to the club bank account. When you have done this please notify Rachel Elder (Club Treasurer) and Chris Steel (club Secretary), and me if you like, but not necessary.

What has happened at Australian Canoeing is that you will have been registered with a category of “Pending”. When your payment has been received the club will notify AC, and your category will change to “Active” – Congratulations you will now be a member of Australia’s best Canoe Polo club!
When you become “active” – AC should email you, to let you know and to give you your player number etc. If not just let me know and I will ensure that you are notified of your player number.
Good Luck. If things don’t work out – Don’t Panic. We can sort out any issues that arise.
